Site administration reserves the right to suspend or remove users that do not behave in a civil manner. Specific guidelines are being further developed and will be placed here as the site develops.
Users who post inappropriate content will be suspended after a warning. Repeat offenders will be permanently banned.
The Mastodon platform offers a "content warning" feature that obscures post content until a user explicitly opens it. This allows for sensitive information or potentially offensive or distressing content to be hidden from those who do not wish to see it. The following should be placed within content warnings:
Users of this instance are encouraged to use self moderation to silence and block at a user level. However as the federated Web grows there may be clear cases where an entire instance is clearly engaging in questionable behaviour. Instance level silencing and suspensions on this instance are implemented on an "as need" or complaint basis as their content appears in this instance's timelines rather than preemptively based on others' lists. That said reports WILL be taken seriously and required actions will be taken swiftly
Currently the domain block list is as follows:
Mastodon generally allows you to view content from and interact with users from any other server in the fediverse. These are the exceptions that have been made on this particular server.
Posts from these servers will be hidden in public timelines and conversations, and no notifications will be generated from their users interactions, unless you are following them:
|switter.at||This site does not adequately enforce adding content warnings to lewd content and nudity|
No data from these servers will be processed, stored or exchanged, making any interaction or communication with users from these servers impossible:
|archivefedifor.fun||Suspended for network abuse. We do not allow instances dedicated to running follow bots, scrapers or mass archiving under any circumstances. If you feel the need to seed your federated timeline please subscribe to proper relays.|
|brighteon.social||Promotes fake health remedies and QAnon style conspiracies, also violates Mastodon licensing by removing attributions including access to source code.|
|freefedifollowers.ga||We do not permit instances dedicated to deployment of follow bots, content scraping or mass archiving under any circumstances|
|freespeech.firedragonstudios.com||Unmoderated instance which is not very active but has a lot of conspiracy posts|
|gitmo.life||Appears to be exclusively Trumpist/Qaanon cultists. Suspect a lot of the activity is bots. Mostly just don't want to deal with this randomly appearing on my timeline. Wow. Just...wow.|
|iddqd.social||Admin of iddqd is up to some sketchy stuff with bots/scrapers/archivers etc. and tends to associate with garbage people and I don't care to have their activities leak into my timelines|
|ligma.pro||Another instance run by someone known to engage in network abuse (follow bots, network scraping and archiving without consent)|
|pleroma.nobodyhasthe.biz||Wow these characters broke my 3 strikes rule within the first 5 posts that found their way onto my instance. I don't need racial slurs and swastika emojis and avatars in my timelines thanks. That place is beyond redemption.|
|rayn.bo||Code of conduct plus comments of founder indicate no moderation actions will be taken for hate speech or misinformation. Harbours a VERY prolific QAnon-style user.|
|social.quodverum.com||Activity from this domain started to show up in my timeline (seems someone from there followed me some time ago but there had been no interaction) and I noticed that the vast majority of content authored or boosted at this site lately has been pretty vile--lots of misleading/false content and violating of their own terms of service, specifically as of late: Calls to violence of any kind, the overthrow of the government of the US,promotion of bigotry or hatred against ANY group of individuals or illegal activity will be immediately removed from this forum The sheer number of violations on this domain of their own policies gives me no choice but to fully suspend them.|
|socnet.supes.com||mostly conspiracy theory crackpots, suspect several accounts are sock puppets|
|yggdrasil.social||Pre-emptive block. Overt racism and sexism right in this site's code of conduct. Public posts are mostly shit posts but this crap is never funny.|
